From 4th to the 18th of November, Hyperbody organizes a Parametric Design Design and Prototyping workshop at Southeast University of China, located in Nanjing City China. Tutor: Han Feng (PhD candidate, Hyperbody, TU Delft, the Netherlands)
The relation between form and component is one of the hot spots of Digital Architecture. The popular workflow starts with a given form, and then populates a set of customized components to finalize the geometry . The advantage of this workflow lies in its efficiency, say by simplifying the complex design problem into smaller ones (form design, surface subdivision design and component design), effective local strategies can be devised and applied. This workshop will take a brief examination of the form2component workflow, and then focus on an inversed workflow, say component2form, which means starts with the design of a set of parametric component with clear connectivity logic, and then play with these fabricated component to realize form finding in a bottom up manner.
In the hands-on phrase of this workshop, students will work in small groups of 3-5 persons. Each group will design and produce their own physical components and creatively assemble them to search for the final form. During this physical form finding process, students will also apply the CAD model made in this workshop to fast produce the needed components. Each group shall finish two physical models out of the same set of components for comparison.
